Kinsey Sicks Brings OY VEY IN A MANGER To Jewish Community Center
There will be belly laughs galore when the Kinsey Sicks take the stage for this one-night only engagement, Oy Vey in a Manger, Dec. 15 at The White Theatre of the Jewish Community Center (The J). "Oy Vey in a Manger" features a dragapella quartet - Rachel, Winnie, Trixie and Trampolina - who sing and dance providing a decidedly R-rated romp through the best and worst of Christmas adding a splash of fierce feminism and fun! Showtime is 7:30 p.m.
The comedic evening follows the tale of this foursome as they try to sell off their manger - yes, that manger - before it's foreclosed upon. Crises arise, secrets are revealed, Jewish-Gentile tensions surface, and mayhem ensues--all in glorious four-part harmony. "Oy Vey" boasts The Kinsey Sicks reinterpretations of holiday classics, such as "God Bless Ye Femmy Lesbians," "Satan Baby," and "I'm Dreaming of a Vanna White Christmas," plus hilarious Jewish satiric fare, including "Don't Be Happy, Worry," the Chanukah spa classic "I Had a Little Facial" and, of course, the requisite and new Christmas cuisine standard, "Soylent Night."
The Kinsey Sicks has been touted by The New York Post as "... a raunchy parody of a holiday show that could make even Scrooge smile (supposing he had a modicum of gay sensibility)".
Celebrating 25 years together, The Kinsey Sicks phenomenal performance record includes an Off-Broadway show, an extended run in Las Vegas, two feature films, three concert DVDs, nine albums, appearances in over 40 states, and around the world in Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia.
"We're so excited to brighten up the holiday season with a little much-needed laughter," said Keith Wiedenkeller, The J's Director of Arts + Culture. "This raucous show is a wonderful departure from anything we've ever brought to our stage and will reach a broad audience that may not usually visit The White Theatre, truly living up to the J value of being welcoming and inclusive."
Tickets for Kinsey Sicks are $14-$35. For tickets, please call the White Theatre Box Office at (913) 327-8054 or order online at TheWhiteTheatre.org. Assisted listening devices will be available for this, and all White Theatre performances. This performance is not for the faint of heart but is for those who love to have fun!
